CRF Announces Late Breaking Trials And First Report Investigations To Be Presented At TCT 2012

September 14, 2012

Clinical Trial Findings Will Feature Research Breakthroughs in Interventional Cardiology

NEW YORK, Sept. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — The Cardiovascular Research Foundation (CRF) has announced the late breaking trials and first report investigations that will be presented at next month’s Transcatheter Cardiovascular Therapeutics (TCT) 2012 scientific symposium. TCT, the world’s premier educational meeting specializing in interventional cardiovascular medicine, will take place October 22 – 26 in Miami, Florida.

The studies selected will shed new light on the effectiveness and safety of minimally invasive techniques, pharmaceuticals, technologies and devices that show potential to treat or prevent cardiovascular disease, one of the leading causes of death globally. Late-breaking clinical trials and first report investigations will be presented in the Main Arena and highlighted during press conferences scheduled for Wednesday, October 24, Thursday, October 25, and Friday, October 26.
